British etiquette expert, William Hanson, shows us in this short video how to eat mince pies. Something that was new to me. You eat them with your left hand!

A mince pie is a small pie filled with mincemeat and fruit that is traditionally served during the Christmas season in the English-speaking world. If you want to make them yourself, try this recipe I found on the BBC website here.

I’ve never made them myself, because I don’t like them. It’s the suet in the filling I don’t like! The very thought of the suet makes me shudder!
